Re: The Sloth

I haven't used the 'upload attachement' function, but I post mine up to the gallery or Picasa mostly and just put the URL to the picture in my post, highlight the whole URL, then push the 'Img' button above post text. It wraps the link with the image tags and they just show up in the posts. You can see it in the preview if you did it right.

Re: The Sloth

hey after you were posting on the ox i figured out what bus was yours. ? i'm not sure about the lights on in the dash. did you let it warm up for a while? did they every go off? when you heat the glow plugs your gages move all the way to the right then all the way to the left then start the register maybe wait till they start to register. I drive a truck at work and that is the trick to it. if you start it before the gages register sometimes the oil/water light will be on and it will beep like it is over heating. just a thought. got another question for ya does your bus have air brakes? if not these next questions may not apply....... did your stop sign have a blatter type thing that would push the sign out? was it an air line that led to it? once you removed it you drove the bus and brakes worked fine? i have not driven mine since i removed my sign actually let along started it having a problem with my batteries. i was not sure if it was an air line that ran to it just looked like it. was unable to trace it.

not sure why you cant upload pictures but the only problem i have had is size i use the upload attachment and before i upload i use photoshop sure you can use any photo program or paint just resize it so it is a smaller file and save as a copy (so you don't mess with original)

Re: The Sloth

I hate neighbors like that... If I were closer to you, I'd come over and kick him in the nuts for ya...

The way I post pics... Right click on image in my photobucket and left click on image location, then paste it between the img things that show up when you click on the button above where you type to post... Hope this helps...
